Problem of the Week- 29/4/12
« on: March 23, 2012, 12:02:49 am »
When a strong solution of tin(IV)bromide is added to a 50% solution of phenylethene in 1,2 dichloroethane, it is found that the viscocity of the mixture increases with time and the volume decreases with time
 Why do we use 1,2-dichloroethane and not water to dissolve phenylethene?
 How would you explain the visible change in appearance of the mixture with time?
What could be the final product?

Nothing gets higher than where God dwells. If there is an upper limit to the universe,call it the abode of God
